Mycah Pittman Showed a Glimpse of What He Can Bring to Oregon, and it's Just What the Ducks Need

For five long weeks, Oregon freshman Mycah Pittman was relegated to the sideline while he watched his friends and teammates take the field. He was left rehabbing a shoulder-injury suffered before the season, and the Ducks' fanbase was anxiously awaiting his debut. 

At long last, Pittman took the field on Saturday night as the Ducks took on the Cal Golden Bears, and he did not disappoint. 

The true freshman finished with four catches on four targets for 43 yards. The stat-line may not jump off the page, but the receptions hauled in by Pittman were tougher than your average catch over the middle, as he was sent diving and jumping through traffic to come down with the ball. 

For Pittman, it was special taking the field at long last, and the wait to get in front of his new home crowd at Autzen stadium made the experience that much more special. He was dealt a tough hand with an early-season injury, but his journey through the process will make the destination sweeter. 

Though the fans were unable to witness the freshman kick things into high gear, it was the perfect performance to leave Oregon wanting for more. The Ducks have now seen what Pittman can do, and they caught a glimpse of what he can bring to the table. The anticipation for his breakout game is sure to mount as the weeks go on.
